    That looks like a B-I-G frame, but with 29" wheels, it actually doesn't look as out of proportion as some of the other NBA star custom made machines.

    You'd think at his weight, he'd want a Lefty and a Righty, but as is, it's a testament to the strength and durability of the fork design.

    Edit: I take it back. I just scaled his frame off the rotor, and it looks like it's only 22-23" ST. I mean, yeah, it's "XL" big, but not unusual.

    He bought a stake in C-Dale just a few months ago, and there was a lot of press at the time that he had already been riding a custom Cannondale frame, thus becoming interested in the company.

    Don't recall seeing this particular frame, though.

    Yeah I'm sure it was posted awhile back in the original Lebron post.

    It was custom built for the King for Kids Bike-a-thon in Akron, Ohio

    "based on its Caffeine model, with a 29er frame painted in the Cavs' red and gold team colors. The bike sports a Lefty fork and Si Hollowgram cranks."

    ...and here's a picture I found on Google tied to the original press release. Yeah, I guess that's the same bike.

    Maybe the smallish tire is throwing me off... the frame size looks pretty normal compared to the bikes around it. The handlebars are sky high, but then again, so are the bars on the bike ridden by the big guy with the white hat.

    maybe they're all on 29ers

    could be that he's got his front wheel turned a bit?

    Looks like he got a custom-made steerer tube as well. And a carbon Lefty on a street bike.

    As Mel Brooks once said, "It's good to be King."
